Description : The boy was born during the night of November 12, 2016, less than two days before the picture was taken. He has traveled a long distance from Shawalikot and is the first boy after 10 daughters. He has yet to be named and only weights 1 kg.
Opened on September 6, 2016, the new ward provides more beds (157), more equipment and more staff compared to the old ward (93 beds). Despite the increase, the new ward is already at over-capacity.
